Description of problem:
A malloc()ed block is free()d twice when running the testcase libio/tst-fopenloc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run testcase libio/tst-fopenloc with breakpoints at __gconv_release_cache,
__gconv_release_step, and __gconv_lookup_cache+289 (just after the call to
malloc() at line 360).
2. At each breakpoint, print $eax, which contains the pointer of interest.

Actual Results:   Note that the first block allocated [the call to malloc() in
__gconv_lookup_cache] is freed once from __gconv_release_cache and once from

Expected Results:  No block is referenced after it is free()d.

Additional info:

Here is the error report from a commercial tool.  valgrind ought to report

>>   if (--step->__counter == 0)
